If you’re in the Intercultural Communication course, you will have readings that prepare you for the Traveling Seminar, but much of the learning comes from the seeing and the doing. You’ll explore the main sites in Palermo and Catania, meet with a local anti-mafia organization, speak with Sicilian youth, explore museums, try local food, see performance arts. This is learning at its best.
